This isn’t directly related to Niagara Falls, but many visitors do make a trip into Niagara-on-the-Lake when the come.
From the Cleveland.com:
American soldiers burned charming Niagara-on-the-Lake to the ground in late 1813, a brutal act in the ongoing War of 1812.
Lucky for us, the Canadians rebuilt – because Americans have been enjoying this lovely, lakeside town ever since.
For Clevelanders, especially, it’s an ideal jaunt – less than four hours by car for an international weekend away.
From the News India Times:
Fourth time around, it cannot be a coincidence, for sure. My wife and I are now very certain of one thing: if there’s one tourist spot in America where more Indians frequent than any ‘Little India’ area in the United States, it’s Niagara Falls – the home of three majestic waterfalls spanning the boundaries of the United States and Canada, beautiful gardens and verdant vistas, with quaint, tiny islands one can cross by foot over bridges, strong riptides lapping at edges.
Last week was my fourth visit to Niagara Falls in 17 years: the first time was with my girlfriend, when we were both graduate students in New York; then again after she and I got married, once when my parents visited from New Delhi, and my wife and I accompanied them; and now, with the kids and my wife in tow.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Metrolinx and Niagara Parks are teaming up to make it easier for people to experience one of the country’s top tourism destinations.
The provincial transit agency’s seasonal Go Train service from downtown Toronto to Niagara resumes June 23 and, with the new partnership with Niagara Parks, visitors will be able to purchase travel packages that combine a round-trip GO Train ticket with access to the Wego transportation system.
“We are truly excited to be working with Metrolinx on this project as we invite visitors to immerse themselves in the rich history, world-renowned gardens, trails and pathways and breathtaking natural beauty that characterize Niagara Parks and the entire Niagara region,” Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission, said Monday at Table Rock.

From the Tennessean (including photos):
My first impression of Canada is that it’s flashy.”
These were the words of my 12-year-old son crossing the bridge from New York to Niagara Falls, Ontario. This impression will prove short-lived for him and his two brothers, but if you make this journey at night, you can’t miss the urgent neon of the town’s casinos and resorts.
No, guys, those aren’t the Northern Lights.
Just as there are two major waterfalls in Niagara Falls (American Falls on the U.S. side and Canada’s Horseshoe Falls), there are two Niagara Falls communities, one on either side of the border.
